Jerry Garcia Acoustic Band

The Jerry Garcia Acoustic Band existed as a performing group between August and December 1987. Jerry Garcia, David Nelson and Sandy Rothman had originally performed together in the early 1960's. These three plus John Kahn performed a six song set of acoustic music at a benefit concert at the Fillmore in San Francisco in March 1987. The same group, now billed as the Jerry Garcia Acoustic Band, performed an opening acoustic set at a Jerry Garcia Band show on August 29, 1987. This arrangement of acoustic followed by electric sets was used for Garcia shows for the rest of the year.
